existence, this resolution, for such a long time, the sunset essentially on this requirement was april 2012 and went away. and it came out. we put it back in so that we could have discussion. that reporting was supposed to be done with by the end of this -- or by the end of april 2012, a year ago. >> i comment on that one. >> commissioner de jesus. >> this came up at the meeting we were at. there was a lot of discussion regarding cit, where we are, if it's slowing down, you know, how much more can we improve on it. right now, volunteers, do we need to put money into it to see if it's going to be -- can we continue to go forward, continue to grow and continue to be a part of the department's forefront in terms of working with mentally challenged or ill -- >> it is absolutely not slowing down.
we did have trending scheduled quarterly. but commissioner chan and the civilian trainers actually asked that the quarterly training for the first quarter not happen and be postponed. so, the department actually wanted to go forward, but commissioner chan wanted to push it back. so, as far as the department -- we're ready to go with the quarterly training of 40 to 50 officers in hopes of training up the whole department at some point in time. >> i would like her input. bi-monthly might be too much, but certainly i think monthly is something we can handle [speaker not understood]. >> commissioner loft us. >> yeah, i just wanted to say i appreciate the idea that it's not a zero sum game. i don't know if i'm [speaker not understood] right. there's only limited resources. i think it's all of us to get a sense of the reports and what we're asking the department and have a sense of what our priorities are together because having worked at the department of justice, there are so many legislative mandated reports that you just have to turnout
every year, you lo their utility and you're saddled with them. recognizing that, thing that are still priorities we should have the department invest time, otherwising some things are going to have to go. >> moving right along, commissioner kingsley. >> commissioner de jesus has another question or comment. >> no, 35, beforehand you go to 42, that's all. ~ before >> moving right along. >> yeah, moving right along. this is the report [speaker not understood]. annually i'm fine with that. but i think there should be a clause in there that is prior to entering into a new agreement. i think that was one of the issues, new agreement came up, everybody took issue with that, at least bring it to the commission. >> that's actually in the ordinance. it's codified. >> so, this addresses what the administrative code says in
terms of -- which just started this year, i believe, january. so, the next several item are all required by law. there is potentially dgo for 40 item, 40, 41 could be addressed, but we have them at this point. 42, there's no legal requirement for this. what was pointed out to us, though, is that each of the stations through the early intervention system, they measure or take stats on use of force, but they are -- they stay at the stations rather than a centralized database. >> no, they're sent downtown monthly, sent to the occ. >> okay. that would be an easy enough
item to present information. >> it already happened. >> use of force stat? >> we get them monthly and we send them to the occ as policy. >> she's talking about -- reporting. >> we're talking about quarterly reports to the commission as a whole, chief. >> oh. >> so, it's in place. there's confusion where there's a frown by director hicks. would you like to weigh in here? >> director hicks. >> yes, commissioner kingly. the occ receives them, but this is a requirement for the police department to present a report to the commission. >> yes, yes. but you're saying it already -- the point you're making, chief, is the statistics are already compiled -- they're given to the occ on a quarterly basis or how frequently? >> monthly we send the logs,
the actual logs and send them to the occ. >> commissioner kingsley, the occ doesn't prepare a report for the police commission. >> this is number 42 is -- the call would be for the department to present those, not the occ. >> yes, thank you. >> it would be the department. i think the point you were making, chief, is that it is centralized. the data does come from the various stations and are collected. >> right. >> okay, thank you. all right, we can move on, then. commissioner marshall? >> i'm always wanting to speed up the process. what i really wanted and maybe we're too far into this now. what i would -- for me, is like to see [inaudible].
lock at this whole thing and see recommendations about what you would like to change. that's what i was looking for. so, not necessarily comments on every time we go through it. >> fine. >> this is what i thought you meant. look at this, didn't see anything out of order. it was a learning experience obviously for fresh eyes [speaker not understood]. and saying, i think this should be added or i think this should be changed. and, so, you know, that's what i'm personally looking for, not necessarily -- >> okay. commissioner marshall, thank you for clarifying that. what we can do, if there are no other questions or comments -- and director hike has one, so, we will address that in a minute. when we're done here tonight, our intent is to go back over
this again, consider the comments that have been made this evening, fine tune this, and begin to incorporate the item into exhibit a, the schedule in the back. then bring it again in front of the full commission for additional comments and recommendations. >> okay. >> director hike? >> yes, commissioner kingsley, only one more comment from me. and that's on page 10 item 49. >> we're actually going to cover that. go right ahead. >> thank you. ~, commissioner turman. there are two references to annual reports for the occ. but this one asks for a fiscal year report, and i -- about a year ago when i went through
all of these listings, i did provide you with notes that for over 15 years the occ's database has been developed on a calendar year basis. and, so, that is how we generate our annual reports on the calendar year. so, it would be onerous. >> director hilbtionerctiontion, i ~ >> >> director hicks, that is something commissioner turman -- >> [speaker not understood] on the annual year rather than the fiscal year so long as that is in compliance with what we do, and certainly what is in compliance with the administrative code which probably [speaker not understood]. you wouldn't happen to know that off the top of your head [speaker not understood]? >> [inaudible]. >> okay. it's something we can look into and modify because we certainly don't want to make it more onerous on you.
>> our final question to the full commission, should we include in this the fact that we're -- do we want to make permanent at least for a year going dark on the -- is it the third, the third week? >> if we want. again, a lot of these things that we have here were reactionary to certain issues. i prefer the flexibility of being able to change things when we need to. i'll chime in now. a lot of things we do here on the commission are reactionary. and if an issue comes up or there is a community that brings an issue to t we respond to it. certain commissioners have certain reports. and then those things are either remedied or no longer an issue. so, those are the things i was hoping to eliminate in this process. with reference, for example, should we dark the second or the third week? we can be flexible. we can do things on the fly. there's no need to codify everything. >> thank you, president mazzucco. that's helpful.
i think, commissioner turman, did you have anything else on this? >> commissioner de jesus? >> the report of the police [speaker not understood]. so far this is the first time how bad i heard the cars were. we have [speaker not understood] july, budget time is way before july. i wonder if you want to move it up to the time when the budget is there. if they're in bad shape, we certainly should have a column for it. >> sure. we actually have -- my budget director met and chief [speaker not understood] met with the new chair of the budget committee supervisor farrell yesterday or day before yesterday, and he was also very interested in the [speaker not understood] mayor's office and the need for cars and coming up with a schedule for replacement. hopefully i can report back to the commission when we actually formalize that. >> good.
>> [speaker not understood] other items that are not mandated by charter or the administrative code. >> all right. well, thank you both for putting your time and effort into this. as i said earlier, again, we are a reactionary commission. these are things [speaker not understood]. take these home, look at them. another time we'll get together as an action item and eliminate those. again, thing do come up as needed. commissioner loft us. >> commissioner kingsley, just to go back, you think the hours of time at community meeting and you also attended a community meeting. it is so clear the level of detail and cross-checking the charter and administrative code that you have to do. this is a service no question getting us to phase what kind of commission do we want to be, reactive or proactive. we're seeing what we're required to do, so i thank you
for the hours of work. >> i'm glad that we do [speaker not understood]. [laughter] >> and i will say, commissioner, we are less reactive than we have been in the past. >> which is good news. >> which is good news. >> i just want to add, i don't know if reactive is the right word, but [speaker not understood] thing do happen. >> absolutely. [multiple voices] >> we don't want to lose the flexibility. >> i agree. >> thank you very much, commissioners turman and kingsley. it was great. one thing i'll suggest is once we get this list honed down, we can do like we do in law firm, have a calendaring sort of program which will automatically alert the police commission secretary that it's time for this event to come forward and we can discuss it as an item. great. all right. so, with reference to this line item 3d, please. >> item 3d, commission announcements and scheduling of items identified for consideration at future commission meetings, action. just to remind you there's no
meeting next week on april 17. >> commissioners, are there any items you'd like to schedule? i know we have a packed agenda, anything coming up? okay, hearing none, we are now open to public comment. public comment regarding line items 3a, b, c and d. good evening, commissioners and chief. [speaker not understood] with the city of northern california. i just want to comment on the taser pilot program and the discussion that happened today and to really thank the commission and the chief sincerely for all the work you put into this. understand that perhaps sometimes we come out on different sides of the issues. but i think the process was established here was extraordinarily good and educational for us all. i know speaking for myself, i learn things from the community meetings. i learn things from the questions your department, chief. i learn things from your presentation and i really, really appreciate the hours of work that commissioner loft us, turman and chan as well as
yourself and commander ali put into this issue. i think it's a model for how we can all work together going forward. so, i just want to echo the sentiments we heard today and thank you all for your work. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you for your work, too. any further public comment? hearing none, public comment is now closed. please call the next item. >> item 4, public comment on all matters pertaining to item 6 below closed session including public comment on the vote whether to hold item 6 in closed session. >> any public comment regarding this closed session matter? hearing none, public comment is now closed. call the next item. >> item 5, vote on whether to hold item 6 in closed session including vote on whether to assert the attorney/client privilege with regard to item 6a, san francisco administrative code section 67.10, action. >> we'll go into closed session. all in favor? >> aye. >> thank you. ladies and gentlemen, we are now moving to closed session. >>please stand by -
>> we will vet to disclose any or all item discussed in closed session. do i have a motion? >> [speaker not understood]. >> second. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> we will move to line item number 8, adjournment. >> i move adjournment. >> we adjourn in honor of two individuals [inaudible]. >> i'd like to adjourn tonight in honor of -- well, to recognize jacob [speaker not understood]. she was a murder victim on saturday, april 8 at 3:00 a.m. here in san francisco. he was a graduate of rudin high school. he was a stuart at louis and clark university. he was 19 years old. it was raja ix. it's too sad, and i'd like to adjourn tonight in the honor of him and certainly our thoughts go out to his family. ~ tragic >> i'd also like to adjourn
tonight in honor of the anniversary of the death of officer isaac he espinosa who was killed in the line of duty april 10, 2004. chief suhr is no longer with us this evening. he's head today an event at bayview station in honor of officer isaac he espinosa. i'd like to adjourn in hon r of both isaac he espinosa and [speaker not understood]. we have a young man from the mission district that graduates and goes to louis and clark high school to play football and he's killed over an alleged misunderstanding, someone thinking he's a gang member. so, in their honor we adjourn. do i have a motion? >> so moved. >> second. >> adjourned.
>> present. >> director sartipi is in route, you do have a quorum. >> first israel em, community indication? s >> i am not aware of any. >> executive director's report. >> i will note that the board of directors of business that i am not aware of any either. >> okay. >> good morning, good morning, everyone. this week, we reached a couple of great milestones, the first one is we started the geo thermal piping on monday of this week and we are starting to put in the permanent structures and second we finished the baoel street bridge over the weekend with no complaints and 0 problems and we received a thank you note for 119 freemont thanking us for the great work that we did, and another thing that i wanted to refer to the board as you know last month you gave us authorization to attempt to enter into negotiations to
reach a fair and reasonable price. engaged in that with our team, for some time, and however, they would not provide a fair and reasonable price, so on april third, a formal letter to scanko rejecting their bid. what we are going to do now is web corp is going to repackage everything into four packages and as you know they put the bids out and it is there for the subs, the first one will be for the cast notes which i will bring to you in may, and the remaining three will be for the structural steal work and those will be put out on april 25th and plan to bring this item to the board some time at the latter end of june or july, because this admission due date is the 20th. that is where we are with the scale and i would like sarah to give an update on the quarterly
financial reports. >> good morning directors. these are your standard quarterly financial reports, budget to actual shows that we are in the budget with both the capitol and the operating budget for the fiscal year. the second report is the contract status report, shows contract terms authorization, amounts and endb participation. and i did want to call out and come commend our program management team for being almost 100 percent on the contract as well as the environmental to be over 50 percent on their contract and doing the environmental process, the third report is the investment report and shows that we have a position in the city's equity and pool and also a small amount in our trust account.
this report was as of december 31, so the very large department that we got from heinz in march and that will show from the next quarterly report and invested that in the treasuries for now to be safe over anything else. and the fourth report is to date capitol expenditure and revenues and i am happy to answer any questions. >> there aren't any. >> seeing no questions, i will now turnover to bob to give our quarterly project labor agreement report which are really proud of the progress that we continue to make with that. >> thank you maria, directors, we had in february, our quarterly update meeting with the trade unions to brief on progress over the work in the field and also upcoming
packages. projects or any work stoppages and we also had this month, a meeting with shimmick and part of the la is for the trade package as it prepares to mobilize and we have a specific preconstruction meeting with the trade unions and all of the subcontractors to make those contacts with both the contractor and the employees who are going to be signing up through the union. the bus ram packaging are being prepared now and will be going out in the prequalification process has already begun and it will be going out late this
summer, including iron workers and carpenters and work and labor and water proofers and masons and we discussed the super structure package which you are familiar with and this has been on the radar screen for some time but we just went over that again with them. and then, the building and trades union also reported to us on their efforts and their out reach to continue to work with john oconnol high school and building up the program there as a potential preapprenticeship. and aus making it for a program for the kids that are coming through the high school, with the relationship between the trade unions. >> we are also within the project team, of course, the
tjpa, and the student trainnies every year and we also require that of our primary consultants so the pmcerebral palsy and cmo turner and web corp also beginning their process to identify their summer interns for this coming summer. and at this point, i would like to invite ted up to talk about the effort to watch out to the veterans and to build a network of agencies in northern california to track and place veterans into opportunities in the construction industries. >> okay. >> thank you, very much. >> i wanted to give you a brief update on how things stand currently, on march fifth we had the building veteran futures task meeting. and it was basically convening
not only in the community organizations and variety ran's administration and representatives and several trade unions but also we had contractors in the room as well. several of the larger contractors in the bay area. and panko and all of the ones that do the work in the city and we have a lot of collar ration going, but for this i wanted to point out that all of us and the contractors are on board with the veteran's hiring, in terms of actively seeking to higher veterans when appropriate. we also have the trade unions also and the trade and the carpet and the engineers as well as the iron work and hers my goal was to have each of these unions and have identified a veteran's rep and
then think them with the identify veteran's reps from the employers side and so there is a direct relationship, so that is progressing very well and on the more industry level. and i have been pretty successful in reading that in the enter agency employment, and most recently, it would have reached the director of apprenticeship for standards for northern california and our efforts for what is happening on the trade level globally to better serve our veterans. it began our work in progress and i will keep the board posted on any new developments. and things are progressing well, as an example, web corp has hired eight since january
2012. but since we have it for the employees so we can do it from the (inaudible) side, thanks. >> thank you, ted. >> thank you, ted. web corp has really done a fantastic job, in stepping into the veteran's recruitment area and really making connections with the agencies in northern california and so there is an impact that is flowing far beyond the project coming out of this. in terms of apprenticeship programs and the web corp continues to work on the hiring hall and sit on the board of the hiring hall. and in terms of bringing at-risk adults into the construction trades, and is also working with city-built program where they also sit on
the board for advisory board for city build. so they are deeply involved with both of those and fostering the programs in the city. in terms of our performance on the apprenticeship and the project, again, just mentioning the tracking elements that we worked to build into the software program for the workforce reporting these have really helped us turn the corner and have been a great management tool and getting the participation levels that we need under the contract. >> there are two types of tracking. the first is for labors and operators where it is a one to five on the hours worked at the
end of the job and for the rest of it it is a 1 to 5, i am sorry, 1 to 5 for the entirely of the job for most trades but for the operating engineers and laborers it is 1 to 5 on a daily basis and so our percentages for laborers and operators are continuing to track it well above the 16 and two-thirds percent, almost one to four ratio. and on a daily basis, the other trades, you can see the red is actually good in this image that red is our actual, the green is the target on a daily basis and over the last year since we implemented this tool the tracking has been very successful in exceeding the apprenticeship ratios. if you have any questions we will be happy to answer them.
